School Back in Session in Glen Rock

Schools will be open on Thursday and Friday, interim schools chief said Wednesday.

After more than a week hiatus, Glen Rock schools will be up and running on Thursday and Friday, Interim Superintendent Ray Albano announced Wednesday.

According to the message sent to parents Wednesday afternoon, before and afterschool programs will be resuming. 

"Parents and students are cautioned about traveling to and from school, since remnants of the storm still remain throughout the community, which may pose some safety issues," Albano wrote.

He said the police department urges students to walk/be dropped off due to limited parking on streets adjacent to the high school. 

"We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding during these trying times," he said. "Please know that the administrators have in daily consultation and planning since the onset of the storm."

The interim schools chief thanked the public safety members for "their dedicated efforts, advice, and support these past two weeks."

The school board will be meeting on Nov. 19 to determine how the lost school days will be made up.

It's unclear if Nor'easter Athena will prevent schools from opening.

It would be a nice touch if all Principals and the Superintendent were at each school to welcome the students back. Everyone is happy to get back to normal. Teachers and families were asked to abandon their original travel plans to make Thursday and Friday happen. Can't wait!
